I don't think I can see anyone beating Denver in the AFC playoffs, but I thought that last year too.  Seattle is head and shoulders above everyone and I just can't see anyone scoring 38 on them.  The one team I'm keeping an eye out on is Carolina.  They've got some tough games coming down the stretch, so we'll see if they are for real.

Saints and Broncos - could go either way.

I don't think the Saints can win in Seattle. And if they don't the first time, it will be harder the second.

Loud, cold, and wet. Not a great recipe for a precision passing offense. Especially against the Legion of Boom.

  My team hasn't been relevant in 40 years, so I gotta be a hater.

So I guess I'll give your ticket for the HOF induction ceremony for Brady and Belichick to someone else, huh Tom.
Absolutely.  I would turn that down if it was a fully paid for trip, unless I was allowed to punch Belichick in the jimmies.  I have nothing against Brady, except that he is an overrated whiner. :)

For someone who hates the Patriots so much, you really don't talk about anything else.
I don't really hate the Pats, just their cheating coach who got a slap on the wrist instead of a nut punch for it. ;)

Best Head coach and Quarterback combo ever!!  EVER!!
I didn't know they had legalized weed for recreational use in NH too!!  Congratulations! ;D

No need to be a hater, the lightning bolts aren't really all that bad.  Except last Sunday...   ;D

You're right, as a fins fan you know about decades of being irrelevant. And the bolts did win the greatest game ever ;D

Did the bolts get a Super Bowl ring for that game?  Oh wait.  The bolts have not won any Super Bowl rings. That would make them irrelevant since at least 1967, no?

But,isn't the greatest NFL game ever played considered to be the NFL Championship game in 1958?  The bolts won that game?  I thought the Colts beat the Giants 23-17 in overtime in that one.

Colts - Bolts. Kinda the same.  I guess you look for relevancy wherever you can find it.  8)

You gotta lay off the puna butter.  It's good to see you are still bitter about a game in way back in 1981 though :o

  ;D  The Colts have been to 2 Super Bowls in 6 or 7 years,won one, won a slew of divisions, and played consistently good football. Should they maybe have won more than one Super Bowl ? Yep. But searching for "relevancy" has been a fairly easy search.    ;)

Nope.  They legitimately sucked. Bill Polian had stopped drafting young players who could play (or sign free agents who still could either). Peyton got hurt and we had Curtis Painter out there, who couldn't play QB in a NERF league . Wheels fell off.
